SPECIAL ISSUE: "Transition of Old Version Control Systems to Modern Version Control Systems: Leveraging DevOps and IoT Together"
This Special Issue (SI) presents a comprehensive study and assessment of the state- of-the-art research and development related to the unique needs of migration of Old Version Control Systems to Modern Version Control Systems, and possible solutions using DevOps automation.
The software industry strives to establish IT standards and collaboration between development and DevOps teams earlier in the cycle provides a large number of benefits in all possible dimensions. Automation of CI/CD pipelines opens the door for IT industry to experience advancement in operational efficiency. This is a direct improvement that transpires from the implementation of DevSecOps and is accompanied by quicker response times from security teams, earlier detection of code vulnerabilities, and enhanced product reliability.
Above all else, DevSecOps enables organizations to provide consumers with increasingly secure products at an accelerated rate. Less gridlock during the application of late-stage security practices can make a major difference in freeing up time for DevSecOps engineers to make improvements during other segments of the product development cycle. Keeping all facts in consideration, it is feasible to recognize why an increasing number of companies and organizations are migrating to modern version control systems throughout the development process.
We can use NodeMCU IoT devices for communicating between the source and destination as part of the VCS migration process.
This SI aims to present the detailed research carried out to find all challenges and problems to migrate from a legacy version control system to a modern version control system. The SI examines research limitations and presents recommendations for further research to incorporate DevOps automation to build migration model frameworks. The benefits of CI/CD are numerous but implementing the process can present challenges. First, while continuous integration and continuous delivery/deployment are related, they are distinct parts of the CI/CD pipeline. When organizations don’t understand the difference, they can end up implementing CI alone and calling it CI/CD.
This SI also describes how the DevOps framework can be used to automate the migration process.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
DevOps modernization for advanced version control system.
Leveraging IOT in version control migration.
- Pre-Migration validation for the version control system.
